Have a listen to the lyrics in the Andrews Sisters version of 'Hold' tight sometime. Cracks me up. All that talk about 'buttered fish' isn't about seafood thats for sure. I read once that the sisters had no idea what they even singing about in many of their songs until years later. I like oysters, l...
